History

German Lutherans founded Carthage in 1847 in Hillsboro, Illinois as The Literary and Theological Institute of the Lutheran Church of the Far West. In 1852 the college moved to Springfield, Illinois and operated under the name Illinois State University. However, the college closed in 1869 due to budgetary reasons. In 1870 the college was reopened as Carthage College in Carthage, Illinois. Due to dwindling enrollment numbers during the 1950s, Carthage decided to open another campus in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 1962, intending to eventually relocate the college there. The Wisconsin and Illinois campuses ran simultaneously until 1964, when the Illinois campus closed its doors and the college and its old traditions were moved to Wisconsin. This was the cause of much discontent among students at the Illinois campus who were long under the impression that the Illinois and Wisconsin campuses would both be operated by Carthage. However, in recent years, it has become apparent that this move revitalized the institution. In the last five years, a new state of the art library (Hedberg Library) and athletic center (Tarble Athletic and Recreation Center) have been opened, and the campus welcomed a renovation of the old library which turned it into the Clausen Center for World Business. In the new student village overlooking Lake Michigan, The Oaks, one new residence hall was completed in 2006, another will be complete in May 2007. Construction on a third will commence in June 2007. The new residences feature semi-private suites, cooking facilities, and media lounges on each floor.

Red Men Athletics

In 2005, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) ruled that Carthage, along with several other colleges throughout the United States would be ineligible to host NCAA-sanctioned playoffs and tournaments because their nickname, "Redmen", was perceived as an offensive reference to Native Americans. 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ... The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA, often pronounced N-C-Double-A or N-C-Two-A ) is a voluntary association of about 1,200 institutions, conferences, organizations and individuals that organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States. ... Native Americans are the indigenous peoples from the regions of North America now encompassed by the continental United States, including parts of Alaska. ...


Recently a decision has been made to rename the Carthage men's teams the "Red Men". The revised presentation reconnects with the circa 1920 origin of the name--the team's red uniform jersey--while removing any possible controversial connotations. In conjunction with the rearticulation of the name, a new logo for the team has replaced the traditional feathered Carthage C. The new logo includes a torch, a shield and a C. As far as the 2007-2008 season looks, their baseball team has been unstoppable in the last few years. In 2004 the football team was ranked # 5 in the nation. Carthage has had a huge recruiting class this year, and a hot recruit from California, Dion Scruggs of Poway High School (California), will add much needed experience and skill to the red men's secondary.
